D23 Expo is arriving next month, and besides the usual fanfare of film and TV series announcements from Disney and Marvel, the media giant is also opening up a space for its growing video game offerings, with a special Disney and Marvel Games Showcase set for September 9. The digital showcase will be broadcasted live on various Disney and Marvel social media channels, and will feature new content from the many banners of the Disney gaming brand. Check out the announcement made over on Twitter below.

The Disney and Marvel Games Showcase for the D23 Expo 2022 will be live-streamed on September 9 during the following times:

  • 1:00 p.m. PT
  • 4:00 p.m. ET
  • 4:00 a.m. HKT (September 10)

As for what games will be covered, the accompanying press release confirmed new content from Disney & Pixar Games, Marvel Games, Lucasfilm Games, and 20th Century Games. There will also be updates on several upcoming games from the Disney brand, including Disney Dreamlight Valley, Marvel’s Midnight Suns, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, and a surprise sneak peek reveal from the upcoming new Marvel ensemble game being developed by Skydance New Media.

The last one is sure to draw the attention of fans, as this new ensemble game is being led by Amy Hennig, formerly of Naughty Dog and best known for her work on the Uncharted series. This new Marvel game is a narrative-driven, blockbuster action-adventure game that features an original story based on the Marvel universe of superheroes. The game will also be the first major production for Skydance New Media, a relatively young studio under Skydance Media, best known for its work on action movies in Hollywood.

Besides this new Marvel game, we are sure to see more on the highly anticipated Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the sequel to Electronic Arts’ Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Previous trailers have mostly been cinematic, and the upcoming showcase will likely reveal our first look at the gameplay as it is set to arrive sometime in 2023. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will feature the return of Cal Kestis and his droid companion BD-1, set in a timeline following Order 66 and the purge of the Jedi across the galaxy.

The D23 Expo 2022 will be held from September 9 to September 11.
